Craft Truck ‘Tech Bites’ Leica Summilux C Prime Cinema Lenses

It’s technology, in small bite-sized amounts. We deal with all things motion picture. Follow the light: from the lenses that see, to the sensors and cameras that capture, to the computers and systems that process, the microphones that vibrate, the recorders, and the playback, we cover a little bit of everything. Each episode is one product. One company. One bite.

After much anticipation, the Leica Summilux-C™ lenses – a groundbreaking new line of PL mount primes designed to deliver ultra-high optical performance for film and digital capture.  The product of more than three years of development, these new T1.4 close focus primes employ a unique multi-aspheric design and high-precision cine lens mechanics to provide unmatched flat field illumination across the entire 35mm frame and suppression of color fringing in the farthest corners of the frame with no discernable breathing.

All Leica Summilux-C lenses share a uniform length, 95mm threaded lens front, advanced distance focus scales, and similar location of focus and iris rings—which allow quick interchange of lenses in a busy production environment. Another unique feature is an integrated net ring threaded into the rear element.  Designed to be lightweight yet rugged, the mount and lens barrel are manufactured from high-strength titanium. Leica Summilux-C lenses weigh between 3.5 and 4.0 pounds (1.6-1.8kg).  Available worldwide, the lenses will initially be offered in focus lengths of 18mm, 21mm, 25mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm. Additional focal lengths will become available in a second phase.
